Wakanda just landed a spectacular signing for its sequel. Michaela Coel, who has been enjoying a bath of applause and awards for a year thanks to her series ‘It could destroy you’, has joined ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’, as reported by various North American media such as Variety.
It has not been communicated which character Coel will play, but there have been many who have mentioned Storm as the option they most want for her. Fans are eager for the MCU to introduce the X-Men, whose rights they recovered with Disney’s purchase of Fox, but for now they are taking it easy. Given that Michaela Coel is one of the most sought-after names in the industry right now, it would be a fantastic choice to play Ororo.. Also, in the comics they have played a lot with Storm’s identity as an African goddess as well as a mutant, so they could introduce her in the sequel without triggering the entire arrival of the X-Men if they want. At the moment it’s just speculation, but given the character’s multiple connections to Wakanda over time, it’s a bet that sounds almost perfect.
Michaela Coel joins a cast that will feature virtually all the actors and actresses from the first ‘Black Panther’ except Chadwick Boseman. Ryan Coogler is returning as director and filming is already taking place at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta. ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ hits theaters on July 8, 2022 And from Marvel they promise that they will do everything possible to make Boseman proud.
Heading to the Emmys
On September 19, Michaela Coel will be one of the main stars of the Emmy night. His series, ‘It could destroy you’, is nominated for the top awards in the miniseries categories. Will it make up for the lack of it at the Golden Globes? The battle for these statuettes will be strong because it faces titles such as ‘Mare of Easttown’ and ‘Scarlet Witch and Vision’.
